Hmm. Because Gear isn't targeted, I'd have to agree with you that
you select the target Gear card. (Unlike several others apparently)

Tuck: No, as it had to have been played for SoC to have been used.
Does it stay out then? Yes, as a Decker who is Goblinized loses all
skills, but can keep decking gear. Thus, Skwaaark was a valid user
of the gear when it was played. Once it is played, it stays out
regardless of the condition of the runner. thus, SoC can render
Nerps useless (although the new Gear can be traded!)

See above. Whomever tony was going to enhance gets a CF. Useless,
but they've got it. (Scatterbrains perhaps?)

I'm feeling wise. Bring it on! :)

Actually, it doesn't matter when the race gets "locked" in, since
Tony is still the "owner" of SG. (regardless of where it ends up).
